Imagine how you’re going to feel turning the key to walk into your completed home for the first time after officially closing on it.
The home transforms from a place to live to a place that lives and breathes with your family—after all, it is YOUR creation. You dreamed it up. You designed it. You planned it. You chose the materials and contractors. Who knows, maybe you even picked up a hammer or paint brush or rolled in some carpet—although you certainly don’t have to provide the manual labor if you don’t want to!
Chances are you’ll live in this home—YOUR HOME—much longer than your neighbors who picked their homes off the shelf like a pair of shoes or a toaster. As the years roll on, YOUR home will feel more like an old friend than an assembly of nails and drywall. Kids will grow up and move on. Relatives will visit for the holidays. Friends will create memories that won’t fade. And the constant, all the while, will be the home that you built yourself.
Sound a little melodramatic? Not so, say the thousands of families that we’ve helped build in the last decade plus. They rave about the feeling of a home they built versus a home they bought. To understand why, just close your eyes and dream a little. Imagine holding the blueprints and the muddy boots. Think about the framing and the painting and the roofing—and overseeing it all. If you’re excited at all, then building your own home is the right move for you.
